The second one i forgot what it’s about, but it’s very long. I think that it’s related to the first one, but it is longer, and more detailed. It also shows about the boy, and the dad looks into the boy’s laptop and finds all these mean IMs in the history. Fast forward because at the beginning it has nothing to do with the video.
